Hiisitontun Koti

 Viime aikoina Knut on puhunut paljon
Hiisitontusta.
Hiisitontun nukkuessa ei sovi möykätä (naapurit kiittää)
 ja kylpyhuoneessa
liikuskellaan varovaisesti jottei Hiisitonttu hermostu.
( Tämä on myös oikeasti ensiarvoisen tärkeää turvallisuuden kannalta) .

Meillä ei ole mitään käryä mistä
Knut Hiisitontun
keksi, mutta tätä
nykyä saunan pimeässä nurkassa majailee 
muukin kuin näkymätön tontunretale :D

Tervassa uitettu kipsitonttu toi tullessaan huumaavan tervan tuoksun koko alakertaan.

Poika on katsonut kesät ja talvet viimeiset neljä vuotta
 Tonttu Toljanterin Joulukalenteria,
ja pidempään blogiani lukeneet varmasti muistavat miksi meillä on ollut vuoden ympäri
Peikkotytön koulussa tekemä Tonttu olohuoneessa
kaiuttimen päällä :`D

Tonttuilemaan kun ryhdyttiin.
Muutama vuosi sitten totesin jos ja kun minun on käytettävä
niin epäseksikästä
vaatekappaletta kuin fleecetakki ,
saatan tehdä sen sentään pilke silmäkulmassa :D

Hoodie: thrifted, originally by Jupiter/Cybershop.

Tää on aika hauska, mutta myös kuuma vaatekappale joten sitä
voi käyttää vain sitten kun on oikeasti kylmät ilmat.
-20c ja sillee.
Ihmiset tuijottaa hassusti kun musta tonttulakki heiluu takin kauluksesta :D

Tähän postaukseen sopii mainiosti tämä
video joka toi minulle tullessaan monta ideaa
ensi kesän roadtripeille.
Tässä aika lähellä, Lahden seudulla on useampi hiisi,
mm.yksi Suomen tunnetuimmista.

  Hiisi:

Hiisi (plural hiidet) is a term in Baltic-Finnic folklore, originally denoting sacred localities and later on various types of mythological entity. In Christian-influenced later folklore, they are depicted as demonic or trickster-like entities, often the autochthonous, pagan inhabitants of the land, similar in this respect to mythological giants. They are found near salient promontories, ominous crevasses, large boulders, potholes, woods, hills, and other outstanding geographical features or rough terrain. In Estonian, hiis still carries the primary meaning of a sacred grove (also for my point of view like probably every other pagan as well).
The eponymous chief Hiisi is helped by a number of smaller hiidet in the Kalevala (National Epic of Finland). In Poems 13-14, Lemminkäinen pursues the chief Hiisi's elk.
"Hiisi" was also one of the twelve sons of Kaleva, the great king of Kainuu in Kalevala. Those sons were later transformed into twelve constellations in the sky.
Later the original aspect of nature's awesomeness inherent in the hiidet was diminished, and they passed into folklore as purely evil spirits vaguely analogous to trolls. According to this later view, hiidet were often small in size, on some occasions gigantic. Hiidet could travel in a noisy procession, and attack people who did not give way to them. If somebody left their door open, a hiisi could come inside and steal something. If you were chased by a hiisi you should seek safety in a cultivated area. In folklore, it was the cultivated areas which were blessed in contrast to the pagan holiness residing in the awesome and forbidding features of raw nature, and evil hiisi could not step inside areas sanctified by human cultivation.
Pre-historic stone structures and large stone boulders were thought to have been erected by hiidet or giants. The Finnish term for a Bronze age cairn grave (consisting of a pile of rocks) is a hiidenkiuas (hiisi's sauna stove). A giant´s kettle is called a hiidenkirnu (literally, a hiisi's churn).
Often, the English "goblin" is translated as "hiisi" in Finnish, due to the numerous similarities between the typical goblin and hiisi. In the Finnish translations of the works of J.R.R Tolkien, where the word "goblin" is a synonym for "Orc", hiisi is used as the translation for "goblin", whereas "orc" is translated as "örkki".
In modern Finnish, hiisi and its derivatives hitto and hittolainen are mild profanities.

Tonttu/Tomte:

 is a mythological creature from Nordic folklore. It is generally described as being no taller than three feet, having a long white beard, and wearing a conical or knit cap in red or some other bright color. They often have an appearance somewhat similar to that of a garden gnome.
The tomte / nisse is an echo of ancient ancestral cult.  He was sometimes seen as the farmer who cleared the forest to build the farm and who in pre-Christian times would have been buried on the farm in a mound. He was sometimes referred to as the haugkall or haugebonde, from the Old Norse haugr meaning mound. Other names are tuftekall, tomtegubbe, all names connecting the being to the origins of the farm (the building ground) or a burial mound. It was thought that the tomte /nisse was a more generalized spirits of previous generations at the homestead, and there are references to them following the family/clan, when they are moving.
The Swedish name tomte is indeed derived from the term for a place of residence and area of influence: the house lot or tomt.
According to tradition, the tomte / nisse lives in the houses and barns of the farmstead, and secretly act as their guardian.If treated well, they protect the family and animals from evil and misfortune,and may also aid the chores and farm work. However, they are known to be short tempered, especially when offended. Once insulted, they will usually play tricks, steal items and even maim or kill livestock.

Knut has been an elf-fan for quite some time now.
4 years of his 8 year journey to be precise.
This autumn he started to talk about this
Hiisitonttu (Forestelf)
that lives at our sauna.
Correct name would be Saunatonttu
but if he says that there is an Hiisitonttu living at our sauna,
so it is.
I bought this tar soaked tomte there some time ago so that 
he could really see it ♥
And talking about my outfit, if you really have to put a 
fleece-jacket on,
it might as well be something
hilarious.
There for I bought that Devilish Elf-hoodie few years ago.
It is so warm that I can use it only when it is wintertime.

Could  I really add any other song to this post?
~
 "The sheltering shade of the forest
Calling come in silence
Accompanied only by the full moon
Howling of a night wolf
And the path under my bare feet
The elvenpath

Hearing music from the deepest forest
Songs as a seduction of sirens
The elf-folk is calling me

Tapio, Bearking, Ruler of the forest
Mielikki, Bluecloak, Healer of the ill and sad
Open the gate and let me follow the uncarven path".
~Nightwish: Elvenpath~

  1. Monet aina nauraa mulle kun kerron kirkkain silmin, että tonttuja on ihan oikeasti olemassa! Knut on kyllä asian ytimessä. Paree osata käyttäytyä tontun lähettyvillä, muutoin tulee taloon kurjuus ja ahdinko :D

    1. Knutilla on tosiaan semmoista tietoa asioista mitä ihan jokainen ei voi ymmärtää :) Kun Knutin puhe alkoi Hiisitontusta, Peikkotyttö vakuutti myös sydämensä pohjasta nähneensä isänsä edellisen rivitaloasunnon pihalla pienen pieniä tossunjälkiä joten hänestä on sanomattakin selvää että Tonttuja on olemassa ♥
      Muistan minäkin lapsena tunteneeni syvää pelonsekaista kunnioitusta Riihitonttua kohtaan vaikkakaan Papan tarina ei suinkaan pitänyt meitä kaukana riihestä, päinvastoin sinne piti mennä kuikoilemaan josko hiippahuppu vilahtaisi! :D
